4/5 Good

Updated room, good size, didn’t use the pool, so can’t speak to that, was off season but I can see how during peak season it might be noisy because it’s by the fairgrounds.

2/5

My family had a bad room which was on the second floor next to a street for 1 night. The only good thing is the price. You get what you paid for. Cons: 1) Chain lock on the inside door was not functional. 2) thin wall 3) loud air conditioning 4) bad water pressure when we took showers 5) my mom saw a cochroach
